  • Doing a light amount of work is a great way to reduce the pain of difficult sessions.
  • The amount of work that you need to do to reach your maximum level of output is higher than what you are doing now.

Most of us fail in our endeavors at some point in our lives, whether it's a New Year's resolution or a health goal you are working on. These setbacks make us human, not a failure.

Start where you are at

If you're a total beginner at exercising, you may see other people doing things that may never seem possible for you. But that's not true. Everybody has to start somewhere. Even experienced exercisers feel that they want to be further along than they are now.

When you start, you only need to do what you can. If you can't run, you can walk and build from there.
